    U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld met Iraq's Shi'ite-led government on Wednesday after his top general in the country told him Shi'ite "death squads" were fuelling a surge in communal bloodshed.

    Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki told lawmakers Iraq had one "last chance" to avert a slide to all-out civil war.


    The defense secretary said it was too early to talk about adjusting U.S. troop levels. "We haven't gotten to that point."
